When PoN director Adam Curtis brought the trilogy to the San Francisco Film Festival in 2005, he stated that the film was not in official distribution in the US and urged audience members to download it from the Internet Archive in order that it might reach a larger audience.

Many makers and distributors have chosen to use the IA to help get greater audiences for their work, and Curtis's comments indicated that he didn't frown on this strategy.

That doesn't mean that the internet archive has the right to distribute these videos, the BBC would have a say in this too.

Have the BBC given permission for this distribution?

What is the point of Internet Archive if it intends to just ignore copyright?
